yea, I got to school this morning to find that our main mixer, the Mackie 24X4 thats about 4 years old, is dying. The left channel was shorting internally, on all the channels, pre-level meter. It occurred right before a morning showing of the play for the school, so I had to quick run up to the sound rack and run our main mix speakers to one channel of the amp. (owch!) She's dying, and I dont even know if it will last later today, and over the weekend, when the real performances begin. We have a temporary backup-an old but capable sound board. After this show, we will probably end up sending the board out for repair. My question however is this: if I were in the position to buy a board of similar cost, what are some good reccomendations? I would need a 24 channel board minimum, with atleast 6 aux outputs. Subs are optional. No other preferences but QUALITY!
